The Copenhagen Center for Health Technology (CACHET) have released the "CACHET in Profile 2018" report, which reports on research, research training, innovation in society and industry collaboration during its two first years, 2016-17.

CACHET is an interdisciplinary research center with a vision to promote and support healthy living, active ageing and chronic disease prevention and management through personalised health technology. CACHET is inaugurated as a strategic partnership between the Capital Region of Denmark, the City of Copenhagen, the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen and the Technical University of Denmark.

Excellent research

CACHET hosts and initiates a wide range of interdisciplinary research projects at the intersection of the technical and medical sciences, taking their outset in specific healthcare challenges in the Danish society. By coupling a user-centered research and innovation process with solid academic knowledge, the research focuses on application and impact.

The CACHET PhD programme funds and trains the health technology researchers of the future. Our competitive PhD programme is designed to foster problem-oriented, interdisciplinary and entrepreneurial research. Be it in academia, industry, society in general or in the clinic, these researchers will be the frontrunners in developing the technology-based healthcare model of the future.

Industrial innovation

Most of CACHET’s research is done with our 23 industrial partners. There is a strong focus on translating research into new technologies and products for commercial growth in the Danish life science industry. The CACHET innovation programme helps companies to work with top-class researchers in a exible and pragmatic way.

Societal and healthcare innovation

By addressing major health challenges in the Danish society, CACHET research starts and ends with societal innovation. CACHET works to translate research into new technologies and healthcare services for the benefit of patients and the Danish healthcare system.
